Sunday Christmas Card Challenges #50

Happy Sunday, everyone!  Today's Christmas Card Challenges optional challenge is to create a faith-based Christmas card. One of my new favorite (yes, I do have a lot of those!) stamp sets is called Gentle Peace.  Don't you just love that stained glass image? 


Stamp Set:  Gentle Peace; Inks:  StazOn, Pumpkin Pie, Real Red, Baked Brown Sugar, Strawberry Slush, Coastal Cabana, Crisp Cantaloupe, Pacific Point, Night of Navy, Softy Sky, Tuxedo Black Memento; Stampin' Write Markers:  So Saffron, Marina Mist, Crushed Curry, Pool party, Bermuda Bay, Soft Suede, Blush Blossom (retired); Card Stock:  Real Red, Naturals White, Vellum; Accessories & Tools:  Iridescent Ice Stampin' Embossing Powder, Heat Tool, Snips, SNAIL Adhesive, VersaMark, Dimensionals

Here is a close up of the image and you can see the sparkle from the Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder.  It really looks so much better in person but at least you get the idea.  Oh, and just a note of caution for you...never, ever leave a brand new container of Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder on your table with the lid unscrewed.  It makes for an awful mess when you knock it onto the floor!  I'm still sparkly from that little fiasco. 


Don't forget that tomorrow is the last day to link up your blog to be considered for our Christmas Card Challenges Design Team.  You can find all the details HERE.

And, for more inspiration, stop by Christmas Card Challenges to see what the other Design Team members have created.

Thanks for stopping in at the Coffee Pot Stamping Cafe,

Marsha

  2. Marsha, your use of colours for this stamp is absolutely stunning! I love the way it actually looks as if there is a light shining through a real window. Beautifully done! I'm sure the iridescent powder is gorgeous in person, but I love it just the way it appears on screen. (BTW you put a new spin on having a sparkling clean floor, don't you?)

    1. Thanks, Heidi, for your kind comment. I love the sparkle but I was wearing it for days and I'm still finding it in some of the little cracks and crevices on my craft table. Gotta love it!
